Need to view local time in the alert sent by an ION Meter instead of the UTC time
ION7330, ION7350, ION7500, ION7550, ION7600, ION7650, ION8600, ION8650, PM8000
Application using an ION meter to communicate via the Alert Module in the meter’s ION programming
The email alert sent out by an ION meter uses UTC time as the Timestamp.
Unfortunately the timestamp cannot be changed to the Local Time. The setting is not a configurable part of the ION Alert Module. There is no way to mask the UTC reading.
The work around is using the Clock Module of the meter. On the Alert Module, link the hour, minute, and second outputs of the Clock Module to Source2, Source3, and Source4. See figures of the view from Designer and ION Setup (accessed through Advanced Mode).
Your message ie: Alert on %N1 (input 1) value: %V1 Local Time:%V2:%V3:%V4
and the email you get would read:
Message:Your message ie: Alert on Vll avg (input 1) value: 1039.45 Local Time:8:59:7
Time:11/01/2006 16:59:07 UTC
